Today we are witnessing the scene of the nations of Europe locked in a death struggle. We are moved by the heroism of that struggle, but we are appalled by its awful- ness, not only because of the enormous death tollage and the horror of suffering, but also because it is all unneces- sary. Such a conflict needs explanation. Statesmen, his- torians and journalists have been trying to justify their respective nations and to convince the world audience that their rivals were to blame. Although the stone dropped into the pool of European politics was seemingly a small one, the ripples it caused have become gigantic waves, surging and buffeting with fruitless energy. The underlying causes of the war have their sources in those years when the spirit of "Liberty, Equality and Fraternity" blazed forth in the French Revolution, and in the eighteenth century when the seed of commercialism was planted in the policy of nations, which today can scarcely find room to send out its many branches, and in those years, also, when racial and national feeling, when militarism and imperialism took deep root in the minds of men. These great principles have strongly influenced the diplomatic relations of the great nations. Much of the intense feeling, so manifest today, can be traced to the aftermath of the war of 1870-71, in which France sufferd an irreconcilable humiliation in the loss of her cherished possession, Alsace-Lorain, and in the indem- nity demanded by her conqueror, Prussia. Notwithstand- ing the fact that France has been compared by her enemy to a "strong man who has run his race and is now begin- Page Three ®fje College Greeting* ning to approach senility," she has kept the flame of "Revanche" brightly burning through the years of Ger- many's rise. A greater result of the war of 1870-71 was the effect upon the great enemy of France, Germany her- self. Following the German success in that war a new epoch began in the life of that great people. Relieved from the burdens of the Thirty Years war and leaving behind forever the old disintegrating. policy of the states, the German empire launched a great world-program under the Hohenzollern rule. With all the energies of youth, young Germany has been polishing her armor and weld- ing into a mighty blade the petty swords of the small Ger- man states. Although entering the lists so late, with the advantage of youthful vigor, Germany is determined yet to win honor and fame equal to that of the older nations of Europe. The world policy of the young nation demand- ed more territory to meet the needs of industrial achieve- ment, for forty years of vast industrial progress German rulers and statesmen have dreamed of a universal empire. They believed so strongly in their type of civilization as to think it should prevail everywhere, whether by "right or might." Russia's vast empire and hordes of Slavs bar- red the way east-ward. England's great navy ruled the sea, so that Germany's territorial expansion seemed hope- lessly restricted. To the German mind there was but one way left to realize the nation's ambition, the creation of a military machine so powerful that it could crush its foes both on land and sea. This national ambition was declared by the present emperor in 1890 at Brandenburg, where he said, "I look upon this people and nation handed down to me as a responsibility conferred upon me by God. My duty is to increase this heritage. Those who try to inter- fere with my task I will crush." The army and navy have received every aid and encouragment as a result of this policy. Echoes of the emperor's sentiments have appear- Page Four 3*W Wt}t College Greeting* ed extensively in modern German literature. The book entitled, "Germany and the Next War," by General Von Bernhardi, has aroused unusual interest as a defense of military power . Bernhardi quotes the great German his- torian, Treitschke, who says, "It has always been the weary, spiritless and exhausted ages which have played with the dreams of perpetual peace;" and again, "A thou- sand touching traits testify to the sacred power of the love which a righteous war awakes in noble nations." These principles, as seen in the philosophy of Treit- schke, have become the faith and practice of many men in Germany today. The motive in all her diplomatic rela- tions is this same world policy. Accordingly, after 1871, German statesmanship faced the task of preventing the formation of a hostile coalition of jealous rivals until the new nation was thoroughly consolidated. Bismarck, that master mind of German politics, suc- ceeded in forming the Drei-Kaiser-Bund in 1872, uniting the interests of Russia and Austria with Germany. Be- cause of geographical, historical and national conditions, Austria and Germany formed a close union. Russia, the other member of the alliance, soon saw the disadvantage of a strong, united Germany as her neighbor, instead of the loose confederation of states. Nor did the conflict between Austrian and Russian interests in the Balkan pen- insula conspire to make the Three Emperor's League a happy one. The shattering of this friendly understanding came as a result of the Treaty of Berlin, closing the Russo- Turkish war of 1878, when Austria was favored at the humiliation of Russia. The loss of Russian support was counteracted by the formation of the Triple Alliance, with Italy as the third member. These new diplomatic relations of Germany aroused France to push her own foreign policy with increased vigor and to strengthen her position in Europe by securing strong alliances. These desired allies were secured after years of friendly relations. In 1895 the Dual Alliance between France and Russia was consumated. Then France Page Five Witt College Greeting* secured the formation of The Anglo-French Entente Cor- diale, which was concluded in 1904. Russia and England closed the long period of mutual suspicion between them in 1907, when a convention was signed for an amicable settlement of all questions at issue between the two powers in Asia. Thus was formed the "Balance of Power," by the two great camps of nations; Germany, Austria and Italy on the one hand; France, Russia and England on the other. This grouping of the great continental nations helped to preserve the peace of Europe. In the Balkan states, however, there lurked latent forces of danger to Europe's peace. An additional distub- ing factor arose in the revolution of the young Turks in 1908. At the close of this revolution Austria seized the opportunity to annex Bosnia and Herzegovina to the Haps- burg Monarchy. The excitement in Russia, caused by this bold move of Austria, was restrained by German influ- ence. All the nations now realized that the immense mili- tary power of Germany had made that nation arbiter in a question vitally affecting Europe. The balance of power was further tested in the Morocco crisis of 1911, when the German gunboat, Panther, was sent to Agadir, ostensibly to demand cessions of territory, but secretly to feel the pulse of the Anglo-French Entente. A rupture seemed inevitable. Finally two Franco-German treaties were signed, one recognizing the French Protectorate over Morocco, the other providing for the cession of part of the Congo territory to Germany. The Entente Cordiale between France and England proved its strength, while all realized more than ever th$ value of these groups of European Powers to maintain equilibrium and peace. The Triple Alliance was severely threatened in the Tripolitan War of 1912, when Italy first deserted the Alli- ance but was forced to reunite with Germany and Austria in order to secure Tripoli from the Turks. The Balkan war soon followed this victory of German- ism in the Mediterranean. At the close of this war a critical situation faced the Page Six Qtt)t College Greeting* council of nations to whom Turkey appealed. Bulgaria and her allies were in a position by their victories to make the demand, "The Balkan States for the Balkans," the principle of territorial adjustment. The real problem of the Powers was how to reconcile the old ambitions and rival sympathies oi Austria and Russia in that part of the world with the new situation. Servia, with awakened national consciousness, was not satisfied with the terms of the treaty that closed the war, but continued to strive for a port on the Adriatic sea. This aspiration was opposed by Austria and as a result the old racial antipathy and hatred toward Austria was revived. This feeling culminated in the assassination of the Austrian Crown Prince and his wife at Serajeva in Bosnia on the twenty-eighth of last June. This was the match that dropped into the powder magazine of Europe. In the correspondence immediately preceding the for- mal declaration of war, which flashed across the world those messages representing the destinies of nations, we see the feeling of deep reluctance on the part of each nation to take the initiative in the awful conflict that was to follow. Austria waited for Servia to show some signs of regret or a desire to investigate thoroughly the condi- tions back of the murder and to punish the offenders. Austria, however, made the time limit in her ultimatum to Servia unreasonably short, allowing but forty-eight hours in which Servia must reply to demands impossible for a nation to meet and retain its self-respect. Austria justified herself in the light of previous experience with Servia's dilatory methods. Russia is blamed for her haste in giving orders for mobilization and her apparent eager- ness to prepare for war. The world was startled by the violation of Belgium's neutrality by Germany which is the result of the philoso- phy of national conduct, held not only by theorists but also by the ruling class in Germany, as stated by Bernhardi, "The political behavior of a state is governed by its own interests." It is the result, also, of Bismarck's principle Page Seven Wit College Greeting* Mfj that, 'Treaties cease to be valid when the private inter- ests of those who are concerned no longer reinforce the text." This terrible war is the logical result of the principles and ideals that have been stamped upon the succeeding generations of Europe. The ideals of nations today are prophetic of the events of tomorrow. It has been given to the ideal of militarism, hanging in the sky above the youth of these nations to TRANSFORM them in to MILI- TANT SQUADS. Above the rude Grecians, Homer and his brother poets peopled the sky with invisible heroes, the inevitable result was, Athens, the city of art and elo- quence. In the fourteenth century the artist became the ideal, the result was Florence, the city that is called the heart of the Renaissance. The ideal that has been held before the recent genrations of Europe is the soldier, the result is the war. Back of the immediate cause of the war, the murder ot the Austrian Prince and Princess, appear the national and international policies. Back of the policies rise the ideals that have been held before the people. Reason, ethics, diplomacy, loss of life and expenditure of resources have failed to prevent the present war. The final verdict of historians as to the rsponsibility for this most terrible struggle of all time will gather up the many elements and give to each its true measure of influence. THE ESSAY CONTEST. 'There is a sound we love to hear, T'is the sound of the Sophomore cheer," exulted the Sophomores as the Juniors, bearing the yellow and white, filed into Music Hall Auditorium, and placed their banner by the side of the red and white. Immediately there commenced a lively contest of songs whose leading characteristic was an unlimited frankness. From the Sophomores came Paf e Eight W$t College (greeting* 'it's the wrong way to be so airy, It's the wrong way to crow." In answer sounded the Junior cry: "They were all puffed up, but no prize to show." Then the essay contest commenced in earnest. The Reasonableness of the Demand for International Peace Edith Sawyer Our Universal Highway - - Winifred Robinson The Crest of the Wave - Ruth Want Historic Antecedents of the War in Europe Marie Miller Safety First Edna Robb Henry Ford and His Profit Sharing Plan Grace Heller The Indians of Illinois - - - Marjorie Brown Marie Miller, Ruth Want, and Edna Robb represented the Juniors; and Marjorie Brown, Winifred Robinson, Edith Sawyer, and Grace Heller, the Sophomores. The Glee Club helped fill up the anxious wait that followed the giving of the essays. Then, the usual deep silence occurred as Miss Mothershead read the awarding of the prizes. "Honorable mention is given to Grace Heller; second place is awarded to Ruth Want, and first, to Marie Miller." There was joy in the camp of the Juniors. LOYALTY SONG. We're loyal to you Juniors dear, We'll always be true never fear, We'll back you stand and 'gainst the best in the land, For we know you have sand, Juniors, rah, rah. Our Juniors the best in the race, They sure are quite good in essays, They shall be always winning, For they'xe a good beginning, Come on let's go Juniors dear. Rah, Rah, Rah.

There is a sound we love to hear, Tis the Sophomore cheer, Give it tonight, with all your might, For the red and white. It's not what we meet, vict'ry, defeat, Determined we are, never to mar Our old record of loyalty. This the spirit, you see Is our loyalty. Yea — Sophomore, Yea — Sophomore, You are there, in all that's straight and square, You are the class, we're proud to shout for seventeen. Whistle — Chorus. On, on, on Sophomores, Push right on ahead, We've got them going, Put them all to bed, poor Juniors. Blow, keep on blowing, If it does you good. Go, go on, Sophomores, On to victory. Tiefe Stille herrschte im kleinen Atelier, nur ab und zu erreichten gedampfte Toene bis zum vierten Stockwerk herauf. Er stand in der Daemerung vor seinem begon- nenen Bilde und starrte vor sich hin. Im tiefsten Bewus- Page Ten ®be College (greeting* stein fuehlte er das Erwachen seines Selbsts, der kleine Ebenholz Rahmenw uerde bald sein erstes Meisterwerk umfassen. Er dachte an seine Mutter, nicht umsonst wuerde sie sich nach dem Tode seines Vaters fuer ihn abge- plagt haben. Hatte sie ihm doch alles gegeben, seine kuenstlerische Aushildung ermoeglicht und soger dafuer gesorght, dass er stoltz "Leutnant der Reserve" auf seiner Visitenkarte sehen konnte. Seine Traeumereien wurden durch den Schrei einer schrillen Knabenstimme auf der Strasse ploetzlich abgebrochen. Mit einem Ruck kam er zu sich, griff hastig nach seinen Hut and gelargte, fast ohne die Treppen zu berueh- ren, in den schwuelen Juliabend hinaus. Er liess sich von einem vorueberlaufenden Zeitungs jungen das Extra- blatt geben und eilte an einen Laternenpfahl, um die letzte Ent scheidung der Maechte zu lesen. Das grelle Liche der Grosstadtlampe liess sein blasses Gesicht deutlich sich- bar werden. Er hatte in den vergangenen Tagen zu sehr in den wolken geschwebt. Kreig War er doch selbst koeniglich preussischer Leutnant der Reserve.. .... Zwei kurze Wochen waren vergangen, man stand vor Antwerpen. Er dachte an seine Mutter, wie hatte der Kummer ihr Einziges fortzulassen ihr Gesicht veraltet. wuerde sie Das Kommando ertoent. Im Nu hat er sich gefasst und steht marchfertig for seinen Soldaten. Der Sturm beginnt. Man brachte ihn ins Lager zurueck. Der Stabsartzt beugte sich ueber den jungen Koerper, "Er lebt noch," "sagte er gleichgiltig, '' Der Naechste?" Wochen waren verstrichen, Wochen des Schmerzes, endlich durfte er es wagen, die Heimerise anzutreten. Zu Hause mit der liebevollen Pflege seiner Mutter wuerde er vollstaen- dig genesen Nur der alte "Onkel Docktor" seiner Kindheit schuettelte traurig den Kopf, als er den verwun- deten Arm untersuchte. Jahre schienen dem jungen Maler zu vergehen, bis er wieder die Treppen, die zu sienen Atelier fuehrten, bestei- gen durfte. Wahrend der Genesung hatte er sein Werk Page Eleven ®fje College Greeting* im Geiste voll endet vor sich gesehen. Fast ehrerbietig entfernte er das Tuch, das sein Bild vox Staub geschuetzt hatte. Unwillkuerlich versuchte er nach einem Pinsel zu greifen. Doch kraftlos fiel der Arm and seine Seite zuru- eck. Hilflos blickte er sich um, was nun? Dies war das Opfer, das der Krieg von ihm erzwungen hatte. Margaret Goldsmith, '17. Page Twelve tEfje College Greeting* [jlj Faculty Advisor— Miss Mary Anderson. Editor-in-Chief— Helena Munson.

The bevy of college girls who crowd the trains after the Christmas holidays is different in many respects from the same ones who arrived in September. The "new" has dropped off as an old shell and everyone is in the strict college meaning of the word an "old" girl. This means that we have gone through the period of adjust- ment, that we feel ourselves a part of the college, and that we have something for which fo work. The first three months have meant much to all of us, but because adjustment is always a hard process the next five months should count twice if not three times as much. We know that we have energy and pep, for we know it now if we didn't before the essay contest, and that we can accom- plish something. Let us keep our pep and make practical application of it during the rest of the year! The first suggestion which the Greetings wishes to make just at present, is that your pep be thrown into the is yet time to enter as the contest does not close until Feb- short story contest. Talk about it! Work for it! There ruary 10. You may have a hidden talent which needs to be unearthed by trying. Now is your opportunity to begin. EXAMS! No lessons will there be during exam week this year, that is, during the three all-important days that will SEEM long enough to be called by even a longer name than week. Now we do not have to endure the chagrin of a Page Thirteen m Witt CoUtge (greetings; recitation of "I-don't-knows" coming after various tortur- ings of the head for the sake of the rebellious pen. The three days, January 28, 29 and 30, are to be divided into three two-hour periods each and the schedule for these two-hour exams has been posted. Happy is the girl that on no one of these days has three try-outs. FIRE DRILLS. At last we have fire drills at I. W. C. When that series of short, sharp bells is heard, up jumps every girl and fac- ulty member in the building, grabs her coat and shoes, slams down her windows, switches on her light, seizes a towel and, if possible, her roommate; then, leaving her door open, marches into line at her end of the corridor. As soon as everyone in that particular family has arrived, the line starts its dignified march down stairs, each girl and it is quite surprizing how quickly the building can be with one hand on the shoulder of the girl in front of her, emptied. Now, how safe we feel, even after reading of some dreadful fire. * CREDIT TO BE GIVEN FOR SPECIAL WORK. In accordance with the rulings that have been made in various universities and some of the larger woman's col- leges, such as Wellesly and Smith, it has been decided to give academic credit toward a bachelor's degree for a lim- ited amount of advanced technical work in music, art, and expression. Also a new four years course is to be offered leading to a degree of Bachelor of Music. In this course about one-half of the work is prescribed work in Liberal Arts, the remainder being various courses in theoretical music and a certain proportion of applied music. Page Fourteen ®fje College Greeting* Y. W. C. A. NOTES. The meeting for January loth was led by President Harker, who chose for his subject ''Preparation for Serv- ice." He emphasized most forcibly the fact that it is only in doing well the small things that are at hand, that we will ever be ready to .meet the larger problems when they come. It was a most helpful talk and a pculiarly oppor- tune one, coming as it did, just before the visit of our traveling volunteer secretary, Miss Elizabeth Conklin. Miss Conklin was with us January 11-12, and in her two talks to the girls, she reminded us again that a life without a directing purpose is a life wasted, and warned us against being like pins, pointed one way and headed another. Her interviews with the Cabinet and the Mis- sionary Committee of the Association, and especially with the local band of volunteers, were most appreciated and through her influence we are planning to adopt for next year, the suggested four-year course for Volunteer Mis- sion-Study Groups. In this course, the work is graded so that a Freshman who follows the plan will have a very well rounded idea of missionary work, both from a histor- ical and an immediate point of view by the time she be- comes a Senior. The plan for the meetings for the next five or six weeks includes a faculty series in which the heads of sev- eral of the departments will tell us of the "Religious Side of My Department." Mr. Stearns opened the discussion Sunday, the 1 7th, in a very illuminating talk on the effect religion, and particularly Christianity, has had upon music. On January 9th and 10th, there was a Central Illinois Student Volunteer Convention at Decatur, with the Y. M. and Y. W. Associations at Millikin as host and hostess. We had hoped to have several delegates but because of the time of year which proved inconvenient for many of us, there were finally just three to represent I. W. C. at Deca- tur — Misses Laura Chassell, Ora Theobald and Ruth Want. The convention itself proved to be wide awake Page Fifteen GPfje College (greetings; and full of sustained interest, and although there were many helpful addresses and talks, perhaps the most enter- taining were those given by Dr. Geo. L. Robinson of Mc- Cormick Theological, Lloyd C. Douglas, general secre- tary University of Illinois Y. M. C. A., and Dr. W. D. Schermerhorn of Garret Biblical. Our own Miss Corbett was there, of course, and she sent her very best wishes to all the girls of the Woman's College Association, remind- ing us that she hopes to return to Jacksonville this spring. This convention occurs Menially and we are most happy to say that Miss Laura Chassell, of our own delegates, was elected as chairman of the committee that is to plan and preside over the next session in 1917. A letter read at Association meeting, January 10, ac- quainted most of the girls with the death of Miss Grace Dodge, and so we think that you will be interested in the following cutting from the Survey of January 9th: "A life of ardent participation in social, educational and religious artivities — none the less distinguished be- cause it so successfully avoided publicity— has just come to a close in the death of Miss Grace H. Dodge of New York City. Known most widely perhaps as chairman of the National Board of the Young Women's Christian As- sociation, Miss Dodge had also done a life work in other felds. "She was acitve in the work of the American Vigil- ance Committee, instrumental in founding the Consumers' League, and of help in organizing the State Charities Aid Association. She was the first woman to serve on the Board of Education of New York City, having been ap- pointed by Mayor Grace in 1887. Her interest in educa- tion found expression also in Teachers' College, Columbia University, in the founding of which she was the most aggressive spirit. She was also president of the Board of Trustees of the American College for Girls at Constanti- nople. "When the National Board of the Y. W. C. A. had been in existence five years, John R. Mott said of it, 'It Page Sixteen ®be College (greeting* has done more than I thought could possibly be accom- plished in twenty years.' The National Headquarters Building in New York City has been called a monument to Miss Dodge, for it was the product of her foresight, and she was the natural and accepted leader of the work that went on within, its walls." Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, January 23, 24, and 25, have been set aside by the National Commission for observance of Child Labor Day. The idea is to bring before the public the facts of the child labor problem and the legislation that is being made. It was requested that all public schools and colleges observe one of these days. The Y. W. C. A. had charge of the chapel exercises on Sat- urday at which time talks were given. The child labor problem was presented by Elaine Burkman. Georgia Humbert gave the content of the Palmer-Owen Bill. Sketches and stories of the lives of the child laborers given by Phyllis Wilkinson made the situation very clear and real to the girls.

Sewing, in the form of Christmas gifts, proved the main diversion of the afternoon. In a clever guessing contest, Miss Wilder was the successful winner. Music and dainty refreshments added much to the pleasure of the occasion. SOPHOMORE NOTES. The Sophomores extend their congratulations to the Juniors for their victory and their essays. On the other hand, we are very proud of our contestants and of the friendly spirit which was displayed toward the winners. We certainly did show our well-known "pep" and the red and white, and with Esther Fowler as cheer leader, Music Hall rang with 1917 songs and yells. Sophomore enthusiasm began to show itself at the dinner party the Saturday night before the contest. The red and white was much in evidence in the red candles and streamers on the four special tables. Page Eighteen W$t College Greeting* JUNIOR "COOK." On Monday evening the Juniors celebrated the victory of the Saturday night before — celebrated it in the usual way — by a feed. The cookery was the favored scene for this merry gathering and never before had it witnessed such jollification. ' What wonderful cooks, what hearty- laughers, what all-round good-timers, what stupendous appetites were there! The winners of the contest were honored and feted and everyone was happy — but those that witnessed the occasion from afar off. HOME ECONOMICS NOTES. On Jan. 9, the Home Economics Club gave a very interesting program on canning clubs. Papers were given on the great need and object of the club, the requirements and organization, and the different varieties of canners used. The Illinois club was taken as an example and its work clearly outlined. A brief outline was then given on the clubs of other states. The subject was found very instructive and helpful and the meeting was voted a suc- cess although the attendance was small. The next meet- ing will be held on February 3, and we are very anxious that every member will be present. PHI NU NOTES. A jolly, twinkling Christmas tree greeted each Phi Nu and guest as they gathered in the hall on the last Tuesday before the holidays. An attempt was made at fancy work but the numerous little tissue-wrapped parcels hanging here and there on the tree were too interesting to allow one's attention to divert from them. Off went the lights while Santa Phyllis carefully removed each parcel and pre- sented it to the owner. An American flag for our traveler, Miss Neville; a telephone for the busy dean; test tube for our chemistry shark, Edna; a rolling pin for the "eats Page Nineteen W\&t College Greeting* manager," Winifred; a sword for Feril; a Chinee and a Cannibal for our two S. V.'s, Rachel and Marie; and so on down the list until every one had received an appropriate remembrance. Then, while dainty refreshments were be- ing served, the clever little verses accompanying the gifts, were read aloud. Every Phi Nu reports a jolly good time during the holidays. Invitations are out for the marriage of Emily Foster to Mr. Russell of Kansas City, January the eighteenth, 1915. * ART NOTES. The School of Fine Arts has been presented with a set of the drawing books used in the art course of the Chi- cago public schools, by Mrs. Lambert. These books came to us through the courtesy of Miss Emma March, a super- visor of drawing in the Chicago schools and one of the compilers of the books. Miss March is a former student of the Illinois Woman's College. We acknowledge the receipt of the books with pleasure. Zillah Ranson, Fine Art graduate of 1906, is spending the winter in Colorado Springs, gaining back her health. Miss Ranson was the fortunate winner of the New York Art Students League scholarship prize, her last year at I. W. C. Miss Knopf recently purchased some new books and vases for still life use in the studio. Helen Adams has been doing some interesting work in modeling the last two months. During the holidays, Miss Knopf visited important ex- hibitions by Chas. H. Eaton, and other prominent Ameri- can painters. The Sketch Class has proved very interesting the past month. Julia Stucky, Marian Jane Robison and Nora Alexander have posed for the class. Page Twenty Wfje College Greeting* BELLES LETTRES NOTES. Belles Lettres has taken up the study of the countries of the world — their literature, drama, people, and con- ditions of the countries themsleves. We have hajd visits from several of our old Belles Lettres girls the past two months. Helen Jones, Ruth Alexander, Louise Gates and Mrs. William Fay were back for the Christmas banquet, and Lucile Olinger and Siever- dena Harmel were here for short visits this month. An attractive addition to Belles Lettres Hall is the mahogany music cabinet that Mrs. Wilson, a former mem- ber, gave as a Christmas present to the Society. On the evening of January 18, Mrs. William Fay, or better known to us as "Emily Jane," entertained Belles Lettres in honor of Sieverdena Harmel. It was one of those delightful affairs such as only Emily Jane can give. The spirit of reunion predominated throughout the eve- ning, and recollections so dear to Belles Lettres girls were reviewed. ALUMNAE NOTES. During the Christmas vacation the engagement of Elizabeth Dunbar to Rexford Tompkins was announced. Miss Dunbar was the business manager of the Greetings during the year 1912-13, and graduated in the class of '14. Mrs. F. B. Sanders, formerly Hortense Corbett, of the class of '08, who now lives at Edwardsville, 111., sent in the following list of former students, which may be of in- terest to the alumnae: Thekla A. Ellermann, now Mrs. H. W. Leigh. 70 Aberdeen Place, St. Louis, Mo. Pauline Keenan, now Mrs. F. J. Igou, Bettendorf, la. Almeda Hannold, now Mrs. C. E. Dengee, 1100 N. Oakley Blvd., Chicago, 111. Alice Gillespie, Edwardsville, III. Margaret Eaton, Worden, 111. Page Twenty-one Cfje College (greetings; Mabel Pinnell, Kansas, 111. Mrs. Hortense Stark Roberts, of the class of '04, sent a very interesting letter telling of her happy life at Nash, Oklahoma. Among other things, she mentioned a visit from Edith Plourman of '05, who is now Mrs. Boston and is living at Lawrence, Kansas. Mrs. Dell Mandy Nichols, who has recently recovered from a very severe illness, is now living at 1020 E. 42nd Place, Chicago, 111. Mrs. Mary Bass Burd, of the class of 74, is now living at Armstrong, 111., and although her time is filled with many other duties, is still interested in the College. Ella Blake, who graduated in the Home Economics department, '13, was married at her home in Lafayette, Ind., during the Christmas holidays. The round robin letter of the class of '91 was received by Mrs. Layton of Jacksonville. Among others was a very interesting letter from Miss Melton of Japan. This letter certainly deserves special mention in the alumnae department. It goes to all the members of the class once a year and is still regular, although this is its twenty-fourth year. If other classes followed the same plan it would not be so easy to lose track of old friends, and we would feel a stronger bond uniting us to the College. A new alumnae organization has been formed at Champaign, on the nineteenth. Mrs. Frank K. Robeson entertained alumnae and non-graduate students at a lunch- eon at her home. The College colors were used as deco- rations, combined with flowers. After the delightful luncheon in five courses, the College songs were sung and the club was organized with Mrs. Robeson, president, and Mrs.I). A. Phillippe, vice-president. This promises to be one of our most flourishing alumnae organizations. Mrs. Leo McCutcheon Thompson of class MO, and Mrs. Lloyd Brown entertained at Colonial Inn Thursday, Jan. 28, in honor of Irene Thompson Miller and other friends. Page Twenty-two Wqt College Greeting* LOCALS. Bess Bannister visited her old friends at the College several days last week. It seemed like old times to meet her in the corridors again. Mr. and Mrs. Parnell spent Sunday at the College with friends. Mrs. Parnell was Effie McLaird, an old student. She and her husband are now doing Lyceum work and are making a great success. It was a great treat to hear Mr. Parnell sing and we wished that we might have kept them with us longer. Miss Thompson entertained the I. W. C. girls who at- tend the Christian church, Monday evening, Jan. 11, to meet Mr. and Mrs. Pontius. Saturday afternoon, the town girls held a delightful "cocoa" in their new room, for their friends. Several new things have been added to the room, making it look very cozy and comfortable. Florence Cooper of Danville visited Vivian Newman for several days. The Juniors re-inforced their ranks for the essay con- test by having two mothers with them — Mrs. Hughes and Mrs. Miles. Cards were received during Christmas vacation an- nouncing the marriage of Maude Alice Drake to Mr. Wal- lace Mehl on the eighteenth of December. After the essay contest, the Seniors met in Winifred Burmeister's room and tried to forget their disappoint- ment by talking and laughing and eating. Mrs. Turnball visited Dorothy Wesphall one week end. RICHARD RENEAUX. Red Eagle ceased speaking. He was an incongruous but impressive figure in the big drawing room, with his blanket drawn closely around him, his arms folded across his chest and his dark face emotionless. He had come to tell Richard Reneaux of the death of his father, the old Page Twenty-three I H I WIIIill l l ll ®fje College (greeting* chief, and bid him return to his people. The tall dark man who stood so straight in the middle of the room was indeed a leader; handsome, fearless, proud, he had been at the head of his class and foremost on the athletic field of the big university. He had been popular, and the best and wealthiest homes in the city had been open to him. For a long time ne had been a welcome visitor at the home of his friend, Bob MacDermott, and had learned to love Jean, Bob's sister, and knew that she cared for him. It was at the MacDermott home that Red Eagle had found him and begged his return. His people needed the Young Chief, said the Indian messenger; they were poor, oppress- ed and discouraged; would he not return to the race of his fathers? Little did Jean ever guess the struggle going on in the heart of the man before her. Educated and trained as he had been in the white man's schools and homes, he had never forgotten that he was the son of a chief and had ever been loyal to his people. Now that he had graduated from the university, he had planned to return to them and take his place as a leader among them. But since he knew his love for Jean was returned, his desire had falter- ed and his plans had been delayed. He could not take her to a life among his Indian people, in their squalor and helplessness. She might desire to go, but he knew too well she could not understand as he did, what life among them would mean to a cultured, high bred girl, notwith- standing her love for him, and that she must not go was fixed in his mind. Could he give her up and return with Red Eagle? His eyes alone betrayed the pain in his heart, as they rested on the face of the girl he loved. Then Richard Reneaux, the Young Chief, turning to Red Eagle said, "Come, I go with you to my people," and passed out of the door and away from Jean MacDermott and his old life. — Winifred Robinson, 17. Page Twenty-four $® W$t College Greeting* A GLEAM OF THE MEDIAEVAL. The Castle is reached by a winding avenue which threads its way for some distance up to the old stronghold. The first glance brings to mind the days of chivalry and romance. A picture is so vividly portrayed that one could not be surprised to see a gallant knight, clad in mail, lead forth his mighty army. The sides of the Castle are almost covered with a tap- estry of ivy and clinging vine. The countless towers and domes rise like great spires, and seem to scale the heights of the sky. In the morning a lake of soft white clouds float about their tops, and, as the sun drives the last rem- nant of night from the countless crevices and hiding places every shade of purple, yellow, red and brown breaks forth from the weather-worn stones. In the evening the ra- diance of the sunset lights the walls and towers until they glow like gold. Strolling onward, one turns to the right and gains a better view of the great court, where in ages past, the kings held their tournaments. In striking contrast to this a dismal dungeon stands in the distance. Here, doubtless, many a prisoner has suffered and died while the echoes of the royal sports were borne to him upon the breeze. As one draws nearer to the dark tower, it seems to defy the whole world. It has a mysterious glamor for the onlook- er, and the sight of it causes an uncanny and weird feel- ing. High up in the very top, a small window enclosed by heavy iron bars, is the only place through which the light can enter. In this gloomy dungeon one might find where the poor victims had carved their names or perhaps traced a word of prayer in the stone, thus appealing from tyranny to God. Ruth Mendenhall, 1 8. LAMBDA NOTES. The Society is most happy to have Norma Perbix back again after the long illness which has kept her at home Page Twenty-five Wqz College (greeting* since November. We are glad that she has found it pos- sible to keep up with her work and can go on with her class the second semester. The date for the annual banquet has been set for the last of February. The society is expecting many of its former members to be back for the occasion. EXCHANGES. In several of the exchanges, we noticed the farewell of the departing 1914 staffs. To us, no doubt because our plan is different, it seems a little unusual that the term of office should be according to the calendar year instead of the school year. We believe that the Senior year of a student is the time when she can do most efficient work, and it seems a pity to use only one half of that year in the service that the editor-in-chief gives. The Kwassui Quarterly contains a very interesting dis- cussion of a problem, which, although very vital to the students of that school, is to be decided by someone else. Since the majority favor the re-establishment of the con- ger college course, we girls in America hope that such a thing will be possible. We admire very much the dainty cover of your Quarterly.
